    Current quarter estimates set to rise

    Currently at 47c, when announced in late January, I expect 70+ cents. Previous quarter was 55c and this quarter is going much better. Lots of assets being sold -- real estate and IPOs (PBF Energy) and consulting business is growing. Annual 'bonus' dividend likely to add 34c to the 10c regular dividend. Also expect announcement to see regular dividend increase by 2-3c. Analyst targets of $18-$19 should be reached by March after these announcements and investors seek to get part of what would amount to a 2.5% quarterly dividend (based on $17.60 price), 5% yearly dividend.

    Sentiment: Buy
